 Looking after employees boosts business
Creating a "positive working environment" for staff has caused in a surge in productivity, a training solutions provider has claimed.

Training Synergy has seen a 20 per cent increase in productivity and efficiency as a result of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy.

It has invested in ergonomically designed office furniture, created a recreation area, introduced flexible working hours and incorporated a family friendly policy.

Moreover, staff can now take part in training courses every year, at a cost of £700 per employee. According to David Field, a Training Synergy director, staff morale has improved considerably.

Training Synergy's managing director, Daniel Hanlon, added: "All of this is designed not only to make us an exemplary modern day employer but also to attract and retain high quality staff.

"We are creating a positive working environment so that we can bring the best out of our employees and give them a stress-reduced and enjoyable office environment."

Writing in Business 2.0 magazine, Michal Lev-Ram suggests that a move from cubicle-based layouts - the staple of most office design since the 1960s - would see a vast improvement in employee relations, which in turn would help boost productivity, CNN Money reports.
